Go-Ferm is certified organic by OMRI. It is a natural yeast rehydration nutrient containing a balance of micronutrients. Suspend Go-Ferm in the rehydration water before adding the selected active dried yeast culture. The yeast soak up the valuable bio-available micronutrients as they rehydrate. The result is fermentations that finish stronger.
Rehydration with Go-Ferm is effective for helping the yeast survive the fermentation. If these micronutrients were added directly to the must, competitive microorganisms would use a significant amount of them and others would be chelated by polyphenols or inactivated by SO2. Do not use nutrients containing ammonia salts, such as DAP, during yeast rehydration - they are toxic to the yeast at high levels.
Storage: Dated expiration. Store at 18°C (65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
Recommended for use with: Organic yeast rehydration nutrient
Recommended Dosage is 1.25 grams per 1 gram of yeast, which should then be mixed with 17 mls of water per one gallon of must.
Saving for a rainy day, or the end of civilization.
I love it when the fermentation takes off like wildfire. This does the trick every time. Bubbling like crazy in no time at all.
I have used similar products in the past and I am a firm believer in getting the yeast off to the best start possible. This time I used it for a batch of cranberry wine (which for me at least has at times been difficult to get fermenting) and it was rocking and rolling within 24 hours.
Proper rehydration of dry yeast is critical. They’re waking from a dormant state and Go-Ferm prepares them for the shock of high gravity musts. More healthy yeasts give a healthy and cleaner fermentation. I use it every time.
